Overview:

Laboratory equipment should be calibrated and/or qualified to demonstrate suitability for the intended use.

Laboratory systems including equipment are amongst key targets of FDA inspections. They are considered high risk systems because they have a high impact on product quality. Despite the fact that equipment calibration and qualification is nothing new and companies spend a lot of time, it is a frequently cited deviation in FDA inspectional observations and warning letters. Companies are unsure on what exactly to qualify test and document.

For easy implementation, attendees will receive:
  • 4 SOPs
    • User Requirement Specifications (URS) for analytical equipment
    • Change control for analytical equipment
    • Qualification of equipment
